It sucks when Customs x-rays the rifle and says what's the liquid in the stock? And then the fun starts! Tungsten is heavier than mercury by almost half as much again so a smaller piece weights the same, And tungsten won't destroy aeroplanes aluminium body like good old mercury has done so in the past. (If it leaked) Just thought it (tungsten) was an easy way to get the best results. The ultimate is Osmium at 22.6kg/litre! mercury is 13.5kg/ litre and tungsten is 19.6 kg per litre. Sorry for hijacking your thread.
